We need to rethink the way we do everything.”

I pick up an instrument and play daily. Most people in the firm are artists in one way or another and how we choose to give space to that expression aids in our understanding of how to solve the complex problems that we face in our work.

When we started the firm, we wanted to do things that other people were too afraid to try.
I dreamt for a long time about working in an environment that treats profits and improving the world as part of the same mission. More than that, we strive to give voices to those that have not had the opportunity, and create a more equal world.

We have an obligation to do good for the planet and ask, “If we don’t do it, who will?” And if it doesn’t exist, then we build it.

No one on the team has the same skills or the same background. People complement each other.

Learning, evolving, and teamwork are essential. When every day, there are events that can change the course of history, knowing how instruments, strategies and algorithms have acted historically may provide insight to the future.

We created an ecosystem to explore topics and opportunities that are hard to solve. Kinneret allows us to zoom out, take a breath, and perform incredibly invasive quality assurance on everything we do. It also means we can truly focus on our mission of making the world a better place and make money while being a “good” world citizen.

We take great care to make sure that all decisions are put through the lens of, “If this was our last dollar, would this be a good way to spend it?” We need to rethink the way we do everything.
